from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the final nine days of this campaign in pennsylvania, $10 million worth of ads. most of them from the romney campaign and its allies. they're outspending the obama campaign 2 to 1. fred, nobody, no republican has won pennsylvania since 1988 in a presidential

feel good about the future? do i feel like barack obama is right moving forward or is mitt romney right they are not moving forward we are moving in the right direction. >> in colorado that's a state that did pretty well four years ago. the unemployment rate is worse there than it is across the nation. he was making the case last night for a strong government role. >>> today there are thousands of workers building long lasting batteries and solar technology and wind turbines all across the country. jobs that weren't there four years ago. >> one of the new ideas the president is giving is creating a secretary of business that was something that mitt romney ridiculed yesterday as he made an appearance in virginia. >> you see, i don't think that what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something about job creation. i think it would be helpful to have a president who actually understands job creation. >> we will find out what those job numbers are in about three hours. if they are right and we are talking in the neighborhood of 21,000 jobs created last month that
supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now in new york city as major problems persist after hurricane sandy. lines two miles long just to get gas. >>> and we're told within the last hour, there's a four-hour traffic jam in the lincoln tunnel. we'll get a live update for you. >>> plus, congressman todd akin was abandoned by the national gop establishment over his, quote, legitimate rape comments. but now akin is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into a major ad blitz. the question is where is the money coming from? it is just one of the things we thought you should know, and you can joinous conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall and @newsnation.

[ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit
is not the right guy for another four years. >> first, i truly believe that both president obama and mitt romney want to do a grand bargain, but i don't think they have the same leadership ability to get it done. i think president obama's biggest problem is he's not led. and when he had the senate, the house and the white house, he spent too much time on the affordable care act. that poisoned washington, because even though a majority of the american people doesn't want the affordable care act, nonetheless the effort was taken to pass it on a straight party line vote. that poisoned the well. i think the worst of all scenarios is the house stays in republican hands which it's going to. the senate stays in democratic hands and president obama stays in the white house. we haven't gotten any progress on that in the last two years. why do you think it's different in the next two years? by the way, it's likely that the reps take the senate in 2014. so i think you have to be recognizing reality. it's not just who the president is, although that's by far the most important. it's also who controls the ho
. >> the unions in ohio is why obama's strong right now. >> show me by hand, how many of you voted for him in 2008? how many of you are definitely voting for him in 2012? what the hell happened? >> the promises weren't met. what we got is not what we thought we were going to get in 2008. >> i'm disappointed because he didn't do what he said he would do. but i'm not sure i like the alternative. >> who is leaning towards barack obama? who is leaning towards mitt romney? is romney in touch with you all? >> no. >> no. why not? tell me why not? >> romney is more focused on big business. >> if they find something and bring it against him, all of a sudden he changes his tune. i didn't say that. that's not what i meant. >> does obama understand you? >> i think barack obama grew up middle class or lower middle class. i think he can relate. i think that mitt romney always grew up wealthy. i think he relates to everything that we stand for. i mean, women's rights, children, raising children. he's a family man. that is how, i think, women -- why women like obama. is he a family man. he's been there with us. a
time to get back to that punching bags? >> well, apparently. president obama decided to go right back on the campaign till today. i talked to one democratic couple of hours ago there was a little surprise for the puppet president obama was doing well, his sort of, you know, fema director in charge, politically he thought he was holding helping him, governor christie was being nice to him, they went back on the attack after that. >> when you look at this, jonathan, what needs to be centered on? looks at president obama is the fema director has made up for lost ground. it looks like the pressure is on mitt romney. >> i think he needs to turn the corner and make the final days of the campaign, which is no more of this drama in washington on every single legislative thing where we have parties bickering and fighting. he worked in a bipartisan cents with a legislator. i think that is the closing argument. we will turn the corner on all of this drama that is happening over the last four years, turning a page and starting fresh. that's what he needs to get out to voters. gerri: we have swing
obama and... i approve this message. >>> right now, we are following breaking news on news 4 midday. a 15-year-old is dead after being struck by a car walking to school. it happened around 7:00 this morning near the intersection of germantown road. police say the tenth grader at seneca valley high school was walking to school when the teen was hit by the car. the driver did stay at the scene. police are investigating what caused the accident. >>> right now, president obama is preparing to head to new jersey to see some of the devastation sandy left behind. he just made an unscheduled visit to fema's headquarters to see how they are handling the disaster. this afternoon, he'll tour the areas of new jersey hardest hit with the governor, chris christie. >>> flights are starting to get off the ground this morning after two days of thousands of cancellations caused by sandy. chances are, you'll need plenty of patience if you are trying to leave town. megan mcgrath has been on this taking a look at things at reagan national airport. >> reporter: sandy may be out of here. things are far fr
from undecided voters, right? like barack obama, i understand he got -- handed a bad economy, but things aren't as much better as i thought they were going to be and i like what mitt romney is saying how he sees the future looking like but i'm not sure how he gets there. >> we hear a lot of swing voters talking about the deficit and the debt. concerned about the economy, the jobs. but that's not abstract. they understand that on a fundamental level and that's a key pitch the republicans have been making. that issue does resonate with people at their kitchen table. >> all right. great conversation. thank you, guys. >> i got one question. one question for you, don. one question. >> yes. >> we're both in ohio. it is all cold. how come you look like you're on gq and i look like the michelin man. >> you should be asking yourself that question, ali velshi. >> thank you, ali. thank you john avalon. appreciate it. now to some serious news here. a new storm is threatening to make recovery efforts worse in the northeast. our meteorologist chad myers is here to tell us how bad it could

for him to win the presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were in counties that he lost back in 2008. he's hoping to kick off some of those working-class voters. he's doing it by the auto bailout. that is something that is widely popular here that, of course, mitt romney opposed. widely popular because one out of every eight ohioans has a connection to the auto industry. president obama also touting what he called an economy that is in recovery. he referenced friday's jobs report to do it. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the company's hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> president obama has a frenetic campaign today straight through election day today, alex. he will make s
wrote that obama is best equipped to tackle climate change in light of the devastation that hurricane sandy brought to new york city and much ofhehe northeast. bloomberg also cited obama's support for abortion rights and same-sex marriage while noting that republican challenger mitt romney has reversed course after previously holding sensible positions. new figures sho companies added 158,000 jobs last month, the fastest pace in eight months. the figures were released by the payroll processor adp and the eve of today's official employment report from the labor department. former penn state president graham spanier has been indicted for his role in the cover-up of child sex abuse by former assistant football coach jerry sandusky. he was initially charged one year ago after it was revealed he and other top penn state officials failed to report sandusky to police, despite evidence that sandusky was abusing young boys. he was convicted in june of molesting 10 boys and sentenced to up to 60 years in prison. on thursday, greenspan year wass child with -- charged with several charges for hav
it is mostly good news for president obama. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%, but more jobs were added than expected, 171,000 to be precise. stock futures went up right after the numbers came out. later oil prices took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the

] and you got it right, that the obama rallies rallies are captag four more years. you're chanting three more days. we're going to have to change that chant tomorrow. we'll come up with something, i'm sure. we are so grateful to you and to the people across this country for all that you've given to the campaign of yourselves, of your time, your talent, your energy, your money, and this is not just about paul ryan and me and it's really about america and the future we leave our children. [ cheers and applause ] we thank you and we ask you to stay with it all the way to victory on tuesday night. all right? [ cheers and applause ] four years ago, candidate obama promised to do so much for us, but he's fallen so very short. he promised to be a post-partisan president. remember that? but he became the most partisan. blaming, attacking, and dividing. he was going to focus on creating jobs, instead he focused on obamacare and that killed jobs. he said he was going to cut federal deficit in half. instead he doubled it. he said he was going to cut the unemployment rate to 5.2% by now. we learned
is the one right now that they are looking at, craig. >> for months, president obama winning pennsylvania that's been the theory. romney campaign now says it believes it has a shot at winning that state. if governor romney pulls out a win at pennsylvania how does that shake up the electoral map? >> that would shake it up. pennsylvania now we got ourselves a big state race, mitt romney opening up that pathway. the big problem for mitt romney has been ohio this entire time. that auto bailout messaging and right there is why we see mitt romney potentially needing something like pennsylvania but if he gets pennsylvania well now it's a race for these other electoral votes. if romney were to get florida you see that 255 in virginia, 268 but still short. so he could pick up maybe the four electoral votes in new hampshire where we have a toss up but maybe a finger on the scale for the president. maybe if romney is able to pick up colorado then he suddenly is at 277. but president obama, we have seen in recent days be maybe, have a little bit of an edge in virginia and again where are we looking b
. we'll be right back. president obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> as we enter the final weekend of the presidential race the candidates will not only be eyeing the polls, they'll be keepi
. right now president obama lays out a new vision for what or who his campaign is fighting for. we'll play the latest remarks from the president on the campaign trail. >>> plus, governor romney picks up the tagline he was using before hurricane sandy. the tagline that he is the candidate of change this time around. with five days left, we'll look at why the states the candidates are visiting over the next few days could tell us more than any poll you could read today. >>> and former new mexico governor and obama supporter bill richardson will join me live. we'll talk with him about his thoughts on where the obama campaign stands. >>> plus, rush limbaugh and a few other conservatives are now slamming governor christie, accusing him of aiding the president's electoral chances. does the rapt against christie from some republicans surprise you? it's our "news nation gut check." invest in what i know. invest in what i know. i turned 65 last week. i'm getting married. planning a life. there are risks, sure. but, there's no reward without it. i want to be prepared for the long haul. i see a world
for president obama. that's great, right? >> it is a fine endorsement. jon meacham, you're an historian. have you heard of an endorsement of a candidate that goes on to read this way? if the 1994 or 2003 version of mitt romney were running for president, i may well have voted for him. because like so many other independents, i have found the past four years to be, in a word, disappointing. >> wait. >> so i don't know that there's going to be a big photo op or a big appointment in the offing. but that's the bloomberg brand. >> that's kind of why we love him. >> it's why having $25 billion is, you know -- >> liberating. >> a sense of self-confidence. he's matured in office. he's evolved, as we say. you know, he's picked theories of national and international issues, whether it's guns or climate change he's been working on for a long time. and it's a classic bloomberg thing. i think it's safe to say that mayor bloomberg believes in his heart of hearts that the best possible president would be mayor bloomberg. but that is not going to happen. >> no. >> and so he does take this data-driven analysi
. because we are looking at an election right now where barack obama will probably get over 70% of latino vote. >> woodruff: so a net negative for the republicans? >> oh, yeah, increasingly. and i agree with the political analysis. i do think there is a pretty bipartisan from democrats who desire to close the border, to secure the border. or they will-- before they will trust washington to do anything on the immigration reform. but as far as the political prognosis, you can talk to karl rove, ken mel nunn, who ran the republican party, they can look at the demographics t is simple and obvious that it has just been shrink. within a few years you have swing state, maybe not even swing state, new mexico, nevada, texas starts becoming a swing state. >> a blue state. >> the trends are so damn obvious, but they walk the other way. >> woodruff: so the campaign, the rest of the campaign, mark, jobs numbers out today. but how doe this fit in and where does this stand. >> don't pop the champagne. we're a long way from five percent but i mean the jobs numbers were better than expected which is alway
university of michigan and former chief economist at the obama labor department, and mom to the 3-week-old oliver, congratulations, that's really awesome. all right, it has been five days since sandy came ashore on the east coast as a post-tropical cyclone, the exact location of landfall didn't much matter because it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practica
obama knowing that's a place where he can stop mitt romney cold. so you look at this map right now, and you can continue to have to say president obama has the edge. >> we're hearing that mitt romney is going to pennsylvania. most people would say, why spend time there? i mean that clearly is joe biden's backyard. >> maybe this is the head fake, a bit of a hail mary for the romney campaign. the intriguing thing is the obama campaign is responding with advertising in those states. they're not sending the president there directly, although, bill clinton is spending time in minnesota and joe biden, son of scranton, will be in pennsylvania before this is out. >> very interesting final few days here. rick, you've been a great asset to us throughout the campaign season. we appreciate you joining us. we'll hear from you once again after tuesday, the big day. rick klein again, our senior washington editor, thanks again, rick. we'll be right back after this. >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this. the new color changing candle from air wick, brings light and fragrance together,
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
it will be at least ten days before they're able to restock. diane? >> all right, alex, thank you. >>> and, now, the race for the white house. a note about the storm, vote egg and today, president obama and governor romney back out making their case to voters, as the clock ticks down. five days until americans go to the polls, your voice, your vote. and tonight, our brand new abc news/"washington post" poll shows this. the president with a one-point edge. he also got a big helpful endorsement today and i want to bring in "good morning america" co-anchor, anchor of "this week," george stephanopoulos. >> reporter: that's right. mayor michael bloomberg had criticized president obama in the past, said he was not going to endorse, today, he said he's endorsing the president because he believes he's best positioned to lead on the issue of climate change, which the mayor believes had an impact on this hurricane. that comes on top of that praise from governor chris christie, the republican governor of new jersey yesterday and the poll you cited shows that nearly 8 out of 10 americans think the presiden
